DVLA V765 Application to register a vehicle under its original registration number
The Club is able to assist members in retrieving original UK registration numbers from the DVLA and has a high record of success.
This is a bureaucratic process, and it is essential that correct procedures are followed and relevant information provided.
For each application, there needs to be a documentary link between the vehicle and the registration number. This will usually be an old style log book or a certified copy of the original vehicle register. Documents such as these are ideal, as they link the chassis number to the original registration number.
A fee of £50 (inc. VAT) is payable to the Club for this service, whether the application is successful or not.
